was threatening her life and then at the end, she began to remember becoming reconnected to her environment while on that road covered with blood. >> reporter: yet even as she became reconnected with reality on that desert road, there are some things jodi arias says she still can't recall. now, nearly five years later. where in the desert did she toss the gun, and what about the knife? both weapons she used to kill are still missing. now, this psychologist has a real history. he was fined for an ethics violation, anderson, in new jersey and the prosecutor went after him on that very same thing here in court in phoenix. he jumped on him for not only evaluating jodi arias but treating her by buying her a self help book. now, the psychologist says he needed to do so because she had low self-esteem and was suicidal and buying her that book was the only way he could get her through his evaluation. but the prosecutor said didn't you have a duty to report that she was suicidal. you don't go and buy her a self help book but it didn't end there. the prosecutor also went after him for his finding that she
. the taint of elections. this is the political environment that we live in. and up fortunately, it affects these issues which are incredibly emotional and after newtown, even more so. >> let's turn to immigration. >> the devil is in the details again. we understand after recess, that congressional leaders are supposed to take it up. if not, we understand, if there is some kind of slowdown or impasse, that there is a plan b here at the white house. the president has something ready to hand in a legislation on immigration reform. he wants this to happen this year. and we understand that will happen and just the last couple of days, we understand the president and senior administration officials have been calling leaders on the hill to make sure about other things as well. but to make sure this immigration issue is moving forward. >> chris, what will be the most contentious part of immigration reform? will it be the citizenship issue? >> absolutely. it is the definition of what amnesty is, if you will. this is where i think the distinction without a difference. both sides, i think, are coming

political environment for decades to come. as for rand paul, good comment. republicans need to help resolve the issue of immigration reform, in order to get this issue behind us. i think it's interesting. mitt romney got 27% of the latino vote. in the battleground states with exit polling he got 32%. in the battleground of battlegrounds, ohio, he got 42% of latino votes. maybe that's a small sampling. nonetheless, the fact of the matter is, the more he was able to make these arguments about the economy and deficit and debt and the affordable care act -- >> but doesn't the republican party have to pass immigration reform, seem to passing it to avoid having the appearance that they're not welcoming? >> the republicans have to play a role, absolutely. my former white house deputy has taken the leadership of the effort in california to help recruit and elect hispanic republicans at the local level. last fall they elected 100 hispanic republicans to school boards, city councils, local units of government. their goal is to elect 300 this year. that's the concerted effort we need to make. we have
